Lil Wayne’s antics are getting more headlines, and this is a rather interesting story. Be warned, that it might also make you hungry.

Weezy recently dropped a very short tweet for Burger King. The famous rapper released what could have been one of the least thought-out advertising tweets of all time as well.

Sourdough @BurgerKing #AD

Uproxx reports that Lil Wayne and Burger King had an endorsement deal, and this is how he fulfilled his side of the obligation. Weezy’s 35 million followers on Twitter saw a random plug for “sourdough.” End of tweet.

The sourdough sandwich is getting a promotional blitz from BK. Starting on April 19th, they are bringing the sandwich back to a few markets. They were obviously counting on Lil Wayne to help make fans hungry.

It’s unclear how much Wayne got from this #ad. Do you think Burger King’s money was well-spent?

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
